11 x 14 egg tempera on hard board
Something has caught the attention of this young girl as she reads in the garden...perhaps a bird song. I have no idea who she is... this painting is just from my imagination. I sat down with no idea what I might paint and started doing a drawing right on the board. It just evolved quickly as I applied the paint in thin layers. I like the freedom in the brush strokes. It is looser than I usually paint, but I really like the modern impressionism of it. Click on it to see the brush strokes.
